GET YOUR DANCIN' SHOES!
We look forward to the second days of yom tov which include hoshana rabbah, shemini atzeres and simchas torah.
The sefarim tell us that these three days in particular afford a Jew the opportunity to reach new spiritual heights and serve as tikun for tefilos throughout the year which were subpar in nature or lacked a minyan.
On simchas torah in particular, the joy we demonstrate when dancing with the torah enables us to accomplish great things in our learning, in the coming year.
No less a luminary than the Arizal noted that his own success in ruchnius was a result of and in direct proportion to his dancing and joy he experienced on simchas torah.
Please join us for Ohav Sholom's world famous leibedike hakafos and our super gala over the top kiddush-luncheon immediately following davening!
We thank our illustrious chasanim, board member Andy Bloom, Chasan Torah, Gabbai Ray Karlin, Chasan Bereishis, and Jesse and Isadora Hecht (sponsoring in memory and commemoration of Jesse's dear mother's yahrtzeit.)
We welcome all men to receive an aliyah and the men, women, and children of our community to give honor to the Torah by joining hakafos both night and day (along with delicious cakes and kugel served throughout - catered by the famous Ostrovitsky Bakery of Brooklyn!) and the elegant seudas mitzvah to follow on simchas Torah morning.
Please remember that due to security and space constraints our luncheon is reserved for members and friends who daven and dance hakafos with Ohav Sholom.
